This will be the last one for awhile, unless I feel the need to clean up a few things.

What's New/Fixed:
*Hitsparks added to failed grapples, telling you why it failed.
*Grapple a little bit more lenient in certain situations.
*Grapple may occasionally still reject in some edgecases, but shouldn't be an issue.
*Down terminates grapples without a jump. Useful occasionally, like that one part of 1-2.
*Drone segment in 1-1 made slightly easier. Always at least a 3 pixel shot that can hit the drone thrower.
*Map screen sending you to wrong level should be fixed.
*F2 ends a level and resets your time/deaths for speedrunning. Was in previous version but unannounced.
*F1 can bring you to or exit the key config screen on the save select screen. Good if you fuck up your keys.
*DEL on the save select screen deletes saves.
*Shoot+Jump+Claw also skips the end of act cutscene.
*Barrels can be used to kill enemies. Not particularly useful, but can work.
*Tons of little network things added for an improved online experience. Should be able to have weirder and more interesting events.
*Particles on the Charge Shot always go to the Kid
*You can "megaman jump" through Bald Bull's boss door.
*But you can't get Bald Bull out of bounds anymore by jumping back through the door

What's not fixed
*Bald Bull/Mr Sandman Glitches (Should eventually be fixed)
*Going behind Sagat(I think I'll leave this)
*Some grapple situations. Though if it rejects, it's because it was a bad shot that just barely grazed a valid surface.
*Probably tons of little things that aren't terribly important
*Some controllers still don't work. I think the input system totally rejects analog controls. In such situations, use Joy2Key.
*Some crashes. Depending on how common they are, I might make work arounds but none of them should make you lose progress.


Just press download game to download the new version. This again will be the last version in awhile, so I encourage you all to upgrade one more time.


Here we go! I Wnna Be the Guy: Gaiden is ready for public consumption. Things might be a bit buggy at first, but a few revisions later and things should be all smoothed out. I'm sure you'll all live though. The bugginess is sometimes part of the charm for the IWBTG experience, right?

So what is Gaiden? Gaiden is an episodic side story following The Lad in his search for The Kid/Guy. Why does The Lad seek The Kid? Who cares -- it's a 3 stage episodic bite of new IWBTG action.  What about the future of Gaiden? Hard to say. Brave Earth is going to steal my attention until it's done, so don't expect more any time soon, but I surely will add more content at some point. How big will that content be? How many episodes will their be? Who cares, I'm playing it by ear.

So what's working, what's not working and whatever?

We have...

*New stage based gameplay

*3 Stages

*Configurable Controls with Gamepad support

*Trophies (also supported through Gamejolt)

*Time Trial Leaderboards(Only through Gamejolt)

*A new button! Z to jump, X to shoot and C to BIIIONIC AAAARM

*Z X and C to skip boss intros and cutscenes!

*Probably won't crash!

What isn't done?

*No fullscreen or resolution support.

*Probably needs a lot of optimization

*Probably has lots of bugs

*People wanna be able to fuck with people like I fucked with Floe. I might be able to come up with a way to do that in the future.

*Graphical options are basic. Sound options seem to be a little flighty.

*Some interface/menu stuff is kinda groudy and needs modification.

*Might still crash! (but unlike with MMF2, there is more I can do about it this time around.)

So if you have any problems, bare with me.

Thanks man! I always appreciate the kind words I get from all my fans! Y'all have all the right in the world to hate me yet you're all so nice!

okay this would be awesome if it actually had original content.

the player must die routine has been before and with better class

it is funny, so I can give it 1 point for that.

ripped every possible game I have ever seen, that is how lame this is.

if you have to rip the art from a thousand games to make a game then you dont have a game, you have a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Kinda a disappointingly narrow perspective to hear from a budding designer! Games are such an exciting medium that it's unfortunate to try and limit what they can or cannot be. Various romhacks of Street Fighter 2 for example may have been illegal but their influence and importance are very clear (SF2 CHANGED because of these games).

I'm more than capable of replacing all the graphics in the game with my own and it will totally be less awesome. A lot of stuff is redrawn for aesthetic purposes (The backgrounds). I could have easily just made totally original graphics, but I didn't because IWBTG is about remixing and parody. Looking at a successful bit of Remix/Parody art and going "You know what would make this awesome? If it wasn't the thing it's entirely built around!"... That... kinda misses the point?

Like I don't care if someone doesn't like my work, or even if someone feels like giving me a critique with a poor understanding of the medium, but it is a bit more depressing when it comes from a budding designer! That's depressing because that's not the atittude you should have to be successful!
